Installer hang MSN 6.2 on XP Pro

Getting a little frustrated with this. Everytime I run the install for MSN messenger 6.2 it hangs half way through an install.
Also my windows updates seem to hang - well don't complete anyway.
I am running sp2, but there wasn't a problem after I had installed sp2 as this was a good few months back now.
I am presuming there is some task that is running that is causing a hold up, or a service that may not and should be running but I can't work it out.
Any clues or ideas would be appreciated.

Do you by any chance have AdAware installed, if so disable it while you install Messenger.
